Seagate’s 1TB hard drive will be our second generation 3.5-inch hard drive to
feature capacity-boosting perpendicular recording technology, and it will use
fewer heads and discs than similar-capacity products we expect to see from our
competitors. It is clear that fewer heads and discs, along with our proven
perpendicular technology, can increase drive reliability, and also reduce
operating temperatures, power consumption, noise, and weight.
